NTDA urges garages to write to government
The National Tyre Distributors Association (NTDA) is calling on those involved in the tyre, fast-fit and garage industries to put pen to paper before the government goes ahead with recently announced MOT changes. As we reported yesterday, the NTDA believes that the proposed MOT revisions are “a dangerous and retrograde step, which would lead to job losses in the tyre and garage trade, more pollution and an increase in accidents, injuries and deaths on our roads.”
The association suggest the best way the trade can voice its political opinion on the matter is by making MPs aware of the “potential dangers and pitfalls of 4.2.2.” The NTDA’s advice is that you can do this via website writetothem.com which, when you type in your postcode, gives details of local District Councillor, County Councillor, MP and MEPs.
Among those organisations that have come out against 4.2.2. are The AA, RAC, National Tyre Distributors Association, Tyre Industry Federation,
IAAF, Which?, MOT Forum and RMIF. As well as many individual companies in the garage, tyre and fast-fit trades.
And finally, if you don’t have access to e-mail – the NTDA writes – you can always reach your MP at the following postal address: House of Commons, LONDON, SW1A 0AA.
